Episode Summary

EDIT
The Best Insurance
AIRED:
After a string of thefts from Arlington Grange, insurance man George Biddle comes to call, in connection with Mrs Peacock's claim. Who is the thief? And, indeed, was anything really stolen? A number of other issues come to the surface. There are obscurities about an insurance claim on the late Mr Peacock's death. Biddle, an old friend of Colonel Mustard's, had promised him a directorship but had not delivered. Green had made a suspicious claim for some supposedly missing church candlesticks, while Biddle also knew that Vivienne Scarlett had sold a valuable bronze and put a modern copy in its place. And did Mrs White really set fire to the last house she worked in? The real mystery is that Biddle survived at Arlington Grange for more than five minutes.moreless

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Reverend Green: (his confession) I knew I'd been found out. The candlesticks that I'd reported stolen in the burglary had in fact been lent to me by Mrs Peacock, and I'd returned them months before. After the burglary, some devil got the hold of me and I included them in the claim. The insurance money came in very handy. I didn't think it was a terribly desperate thing to do but I knew that if Biddle exposed me, I'd lose my living at the very least. So I followed him back into the kitchen and... I suppose it was the thought of the shame. I have genuinely tried to do God's work, but... but... I've just never had the strength. I've never been able to understand quite why God didn't give me enough strength to be good.

      • Mrs Peacock: We haven't been insured since my husband died.
        George Biddle: Really? May one enquire why not?
        Mrs Peacock: There was a problem, Mr Biddle. The previous company refused to honour my first husband's life policy.
        George Biddle: Good Lord! Why was that?
        Mrs Peacock: It seems they weren't satisfed that the death was accidental.
        George Biddle: But, surely, if the coroner's verdict was accidental, why didn't you sue?
        Mrs Peacock: I chose not to.
        George Biddle: Rather than suffer the distress of the matter being reopened and investigated all over again, you mean?
        Mrs Peacock: Absolutely, Mr Biddle. You appreciate my feelings.
        George Biddle: Regrettably, Mrs Peacock, we will be obliged to discover the exact grounds on which your husband's company decided to withhold payment.

      • Professor Plum: Why the panic, Mrs White?
        Mrs White: Oh, well, we've got these insurance people here, Professor, to revalue the paintings and that, and I think she feels it's not polite to keep them waiting with their tongues hanging out.

      • Colonel Mustard: Listen to me, you moron!
